Customer Question

OMG -- I got the document names confused, and replaced an important Word doc by saving it with another name:
an older version of this doc exists -- save as new doc? And I said yes.

Is there any way to get into this document and revert to a previously saved version?

Mac OS 10.4.11
Word -- Office 2004

OK - I tried to find a previous version, but there weren't any.
I also tried to find a backup copy by opening all readable documents, and there wasn't one.

You have done what I would have suggested, and found out what I would have said... Try Data Rescue and see if it can find anything.

But overwritten files are just that. they are gone for good. Especailly if you renamed the document and then agreed to it.

Sorry to say, but that doc is gone.

Not cool.

You charged my card and I didn't accept the answer.
This answer didn't help me or tell me anything that was different from what I said I hac already done.

Reverse the charges to my card asap.
